About us

One Of The Longest Standing Providers Of Online RYA Theory Courses

Prioritising Knowledge and Safety...

At Navathome, our priority is the quality of the tuition and the knowledge gained. While passing and obtaining a certification is commendable, it is the depth of understanding that truly matters. As a skipper, you have significant responsibility for the safety of those on board, whether they are your family, friends, or both. That's why we ensure that you acquire the necessary skills to navigate the seas safely, and with confidence.

When asked about the pass mark, we often respond with a question: "What level of competence would you aim for when you are out at sea with your loved ones?" Our aim is to equip you with the essential knowledge for a safe voyage. Safety forms a fundamental aspect of all our theory training courses.

Our Journey...

After previously running a charter company and training academy from 1999, we realised there was a way we could improve the learning experience for RYA Theory Courses.

In 2005, we made the decision to develop an online Day Skipper theory course and sought approval from the RYA. After our course material was reviewed by Mike Diamond and Chris Slade, RYA examiners of examiners, we embarked on writing the Coastal Skipper and Ocean Yachtmaster online theory courses.

We dedicated months to developing ocean animations, and worked tirelessly on the weather and passage making modules. Eventually, we completed the course, and it exceeded our expectations.

Today, we continue to improve our current range of courses, keeping them in line with current RYA standards and quality requirements, while also bringing out our own range of Navathome Theory Courses, like the “Diesel Engine Course” and “Basic Training” courses.

Our Success...

Now, with over 20,000 students and counting, we have established ourselves as a trusted provider of maritime education, both with RYA courses, and our own range of high quality courses aiming to make you a better skipper, boat owner, or commercial crew.

We take pride in our achievement of receiving the highest rating among online training schools, with over 2,500 5-star reviews on TrustPilot. Our commitment to delivering top-quality training and ensuring our students' success, has earned us a reputation for excellence in the industry.
